The news was announced at New York Comic-Con, and CBR were quick to report it online. The exact nature of Clement's role has yet to be revealed, but he's an exciting talent to have in a comic book TV show. In terms of crew, Fargo 's Noah Hawley is the man running the show. "Noah [Hawley] is a genius", producer and X-Men franchise overseer Simon Kinberg told Moviefone a while back. "[H]e wrote and created and directed the pilot to Legion -- and it is a very different sensibility than anything we've done with the X-Men movies. Almost, I would say, as radically different as Deadpool was from the mainline X-Men movies." Legion tone Vanity Fair has been speaking to Noah Hawley. The Legion showrunner was keen to discuss the show's tone and story.

Many of the 250 teenagers, who died while on a school trip, were instructed by crewmembers to remain in their cabin, even as the crew abandoned ship. The ship’s captain Lee Joon-seok, who also abandoned ship, was later convicted of gross negligence and sentenced to life in prison, while 14 other crew members were sentenced to up to 12 years in prison for abandonment and violating maritime law. The South Korean coast guard’s slow and indecisive rescue efforts also came under criticism. Officers later claimed they lacked the proper training and equipment to mount such a large-scale rescue effort at sea. And public confidence in the government of then-President Park Geun-hye plummeted, and never recovered, over her perceived ineffective management of the crisis, and her own mysterious disappearance when she made no public statement or appearance for seven hours while the ferry was sinking.

EIGHT decades after Flash Gordon hinted that aliens might not have our best interests at heart, mankind still risks destruction in the movies to make contact with extraterrestrial life. From Frederick Stephani's 1936 big screen serial through the US$1.2 billion (RM5 billion) Alien franchise to last year's Independence Day: Resurgence, the heroes of more than 500 space invasion films have been lining up to die in new and inventive ways. This year's first sci-fi blockbuster is Life, a claustrophobic game of cat-and-mouse between the crew of the International Space Station and a rapidly evolving life form that caused extinction on Mars and now threatens all life on Earth. Set in the near future, Daniel Espinosa's breakneck-speed thriller hits theaters Friday with an international cast led by A-listers Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds. "The script, pacing-wise, was blistering and terrifying.

A travel company is offering a chance for well heeled travelers to dive the wreck of the RMS Titanic. Beginning in May of next year, Blue Marble Private says it will offer a chance for nine travelers to dive some 4,000 meters below the surface of the ocean to see the famous wreck. According to the company’s website, customers will dive “in a specially designed titanium and carbon fiber submersible, guided by a crew of experts.” “You will glide over the ship’s deck and famous grand staircase capturing a view that very few have seen, or ever will,” the company added. Tourists will also “explore Titanic’s massive debris field, home to numerous artifacts strewn across the ocean floor, nearly undisturbed for over a century,” according to Blue Marble Private founder Elizabeth Ellis. According to CNN, the first trip is already sold out. The price for the eight-day adventure? $105,129 per person, which is about double the price charged by Deep Ocean Expeditions charged when it brought tourists to the wreck in 2012.

Building a new society. Sometimes we may feel inclined to have both feet in the world to come, but this would be to part company with the terrain of this planet completely. To escape. And why would one put one’s best energy into that when it comes as the natural course of things after death? While we are alive in our physical bodies, we maintain engagement with the living; the living substance of the planet and its occupants – all beings. This ‘engagement’ is the human imperative. This involves not only proper focus, but also perfecting the art of tightrope walking; maintaining balance at a time of deliberately induced imbalance. Beneath the taut rope upon which we balance is a chasm of unawareness. A fool’s paradise. A mock-hierarchical world of ambition, greed and cunning, led by a motley crew of political pyramid climbers, corporate pirates and desensitized bureaucrats; who have at their disposal military might and fiat money in limitless volumes.

That's the next bridge along from Westminster Bridge and of course, St Thomas' Hospital is on the south side of the bridge. We have heard from the London Ambulance Service that they were called to the incident and that they had a crew on site.
